“Get it online.” That’s so often the advice whether you seek goods, service, inspiration or information. Which is why at Green Shoots this we’ve been busier than ever with website design, whether starting from scratch or developing or reinvigorating websites.
You Are Not Alone
One of the most respected sources of support for rural mental health is […]
Last year, and into 2021, of course the face-to-face communication skills training we offer has taken a hit. But stop training altogether? No way! Where there is a will there is a way. We re-worked our sessions to offer them to groups large and small, across the UK and much further afield.
It’s the gift that keeps on giving. The legacy from two great East Anglian farmers, John Forrest and Felix Cobbold will again be inspiring and equipping this generation of agri-professionals to show and share their professional messages to good effect. The next course – January 2021 – is open for applicants.
Picture this: the vast and windy, industrial port of Teesdock, UK. Shipping traffic comes and goes. Look carefully in between the giant cranes, huge vessels and towers of stacked containers and you see people, teams of skilled, hard-working people.
Green Shoots went to meet and film a team at the port who have changed the health […]
We make all sorts of films. Every client’s needs, location challenges, main messages and target audiences get us working creatively. That’s why we love it.

Interest in using film to share a story, illustrate a technique, inspire a behaviour change has never been greater.

How many times have you heard it’s important that farmers and researchers communicate better? I haven’t just heard that, I’ve watched it. I’ve felt it – with sadness and frustration – at each and every opportunity missed to show and share. That’s what inspires and drives me to share practical tips in communications skills training […]
Months of work of planning, filming and post production have
culminated in the release of our latest film commission. It is the incredible
story of the UK production of a natural fertiliser used by farmers in the UK
and in many other parts of the world. It’s a film that took us to great depths,
lengths and heights to […]
When was the last time you were on the receiving end of a dull presentation or boring talk? Too many of us will have a recent event in mind. That’s why it was great to be in a room full of people who have had communication skills training. These are professionals who know how to […]
In essence, we take a bunch of agri-professionals and with three days of tips, techniques and tasks in our communication skills training course we help them to bloom.
Communication skills in agriculture have never been more important. But don’t just take our word for it. We hear it from others all the time. It’s why we […]
